Love this and how you explain so easily the art of Transcendental meditation and how good for the soul it is๐Ÿ–ค

Gosh, we love you! I found I struggled with meditation until I let go of preconceived ideas of what should happen during that time, and just saw it as time out for myself. Instead of expecting spiritual or emotional breakthroughs and deep peace during, I began to find they occured afterwards in my daily life. Also found instead of concentrating on the breath which never worked long term that going down into what Kyle Cease calls "the thing that beats your heart" and spending time there works really well.

Thank you Russell, you helped me to understand how much I need meditation. The racing thoughts in my mind about things that are not important and are exhausting. Many of my thoughts are negative, irrational and untrue which contributes to depression and anxiety. Meditation classes are available on Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and other streaming channels. Being able to meditate by myself instead of around other people helps me to focus better. I like your idea Russell that I should meditate every day. Just lost my husband three months after 47-years of marriage. I can't seem to get the difficult images I saw during his death out of my mind so I am basically torturing myself. Will be starting a daily routine of meditation very soon. โค

I do meditate since 1976. It’s the most wonderful gift of my life that I gave to myself. Thank you to share what you gain from it. It is so well said! โœจ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’–โœจ

Outstanding, brotherman! Meditation each day has helped me clarify my mind and balance my life from much of the internal and external clutter. Thanks for sharing your journey!

Beautifully said! Meditation has changed my perception of life so much over the past few years. I credit it for meeting my wife as well and having a life partner who values it as much as I do.

I have too many thoughts racing to meditate normally. I feel anxious and like I haven’t enough time..

Russell you are so good at explaining what seems like the unexplainable. You have such valuable insight! Thank you for sharing all the steps of your journey!!

Hes explaining regular meditation. You can focus on whatever you want. A word or your breath. Either way it's to bring yourself into mindfulness and live for a few moments in the present to retrain your brain.

Thanks never have I heard meditation so simple thanks xxxx iam of to have a go bud what is my mantra , perhaps Russell ,you could send me one much love ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹

Thank you! I really need to go back to meditating every day. I was much calmer and my mind felt clearer.

What millions of dollars and no financial stress has done for your meditation and sleep patterns..namaste

Meditation is awesome, but as a clinical hypnotherapist i now use self hypnosis which is even more powerful and enlightening ๐Ÿ™‚

Meditation has changed (Saved) my life and whenever I neglect to practice it for more than a few weeks I find myself getting angry with the world around me instead of seeing it's beauty. I also find myself getting draw into conflict. I advise everyone to practice meditation but unfortunately it often falls on deaf ears or is met with a strange resistance.

what's a good resource, preferably a book, that best describes the fundamentals of meditation? thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Can anyone explain to me the difference in principles between mantra meditations like So Hum and primordial sound versus TM? Primordial sound I was given my own mantra... TM sounds the same kind of thing?

He’s not wrong!! Everyone should meditate daily. 15 mins a day! It is very calming. I have OCD with thoughts so it does help me balance those and it also helps with anxiety! I use crystals on the chakra points with my meditation and I lay down.

Thank you! I’ve been asking for years how to do that... how it works... how to turn off the “noise” in my head. Always told you just do it. This finally helped. Thank you again!

I hope you read this, Is beautiful to see your transformation, im glad you have the ability to communicate this process of healing and self-discovery, thank you, you make us stronger.

How interesting. I would love to turn my thoughts off. Is there a book you recommend so that I can learn how to do this type of meditation?

I would like to get in the habit of purposeful meditation. It’s so difficult!

You got it. Nice to see that you so wonderfully turned your life around. I've travelled a very similar road. Thank you so much for using your fame toward higher ideals to help others on their journey. Cheers

Thank you Russell. You have reminded me, and thank you for continuing to keep it simple ๐ŸŒ 

Yes - so true. After a few years of meditation one reaches the state of being in thoughtless awareness and accepting every moment of being in the "present". The key is to observe your attention (chitta) as it floats from thought to thought. Over a period of time, the thoughtless space between two thoughts widens and that is where the magic lies as the connection to the all pervading power (which we don't see with our eyes) opens up. Imagine what 10 minutes of daily meditation practice can do to your inner wellbeing ๐Ÿ’–

I am getting clearer, day by day, meditation and prayer serve difference purposes in my life. Thanks for sharing and letting me share.

Love Island..the tv show... was fun! They were very nice people and the men were very respectful ๐Ÿ™‚

I adore you two.

Mr Brand, you are getting quite a handle on some very fundamental aspects of what it is to be human. I'm excited to see how far you will get in the next, let's say 10 years! Wouldn't it be neat if a person could leap forward in their understanding? And progress quickly? Lets say a year. Or a week? Or how about in a conversation? Mr Brand if your listening, I believe you and many like you are searching for a unifying theory. A way to use the very best behaviours regardless where they originate or who's rules are broken in using them? Without giving detail I assure you, my theories originate from the rarest of life circumstances. 5 minutes of your time?

In mediation we have object of meditation. If we are focused long enough on it, it will in time fully set us free from the society implemented delusional mind charge. I passed independently through my own direct awareness-mind-body-aura self observation / self revelation process, I have got my now time activated, ... but then after a while "I" began to use as object of my meditation something that as mind fog is usurping / intruding clarity of Being of the entire mankind. I start to use as next object of my observation / meditation the ongoing Vatican designed / conned, fiction based, awareness usurping masonic, world(mind)-widely spread legal system and oooooo my Omnipresent All Mighty Creator's Being, this object of mediation is truly setting me free on all levels including on Vatican-made lawful way tightly related to my creditor to Vatican Christian name.

The still from the clip is a meme in itself. The looks on your faces as the caption reads 'and a lot of love island' ๐Ÿ˜‚

Love you both

Peace , Shes Cool , Im here . Thanks

Russell Brand please come visit our center in Boca Raton, Florida Boca Recovery Center

I love this video! Thank you. I downloaded Eckhart Tolle's book:" The Power of Now" . My god it's brilliant. Self-awareness; taking responsibility for my own actions; living in the now are such incredibly wonderful gifts I gave myself. It's been a process of self-love over the past 7 years leading me to live a very simple, contented life. I'm genuinely happy๐Ÿ˜Š.

You, Brene and Eckhart are my fav teachers at present. I love the wisdom you all share so freely. Many years ago a very dear friend of mine once told me the "God is the perfect accountant". When I sat with that, it was truly profound. It meant that I stopped looking to be right, stopped asking how could they do this to me? Why would they? And learnt to allow others to their own journey. This freed me up immensely. I still remember to this day, and often remind my self of this too.

It's true Russell, your videos lift my spirits and help with the lonelies.. and I am so grateful!

Don't fall in love with an angel with the intention of folding their wings. That was my speech at my daughters wedding. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you for the recognition. It’s a tremendous relief/comfort to find “His HumbleNess” Russel w/such a relatable & healing flow of wisdom. I’m constantly amazed by the exact timing/topic factor w/which he’s gifted. Very profound, resonating subjects w/deep insightful reflection have become his art. Much Love & Gratitude to Russell...overflowing inner peace to all๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’œ

Human beings have a tremendous capacity to change, grow and evolve from the challenges they face. Suffering is a call to attention. Its an opportunity to awaken and evolve in our consciousness, to think and feel more authentically, with greater depth of awareness, presence and love. It's an opportunity to realize, more and more profoundly, who we really are and to one day look back in gratitude. -Brian Piergrossi

Gosh you’re freaking amazing. Thank you for speaking from your heart and helping people understand the complex regions of our brain that overreact, overwhelm us, discourage us, and make us fearful. I’ve been reading self help books for years but your short videos put a smile on my face and make me realize that I’m on the right path. Thanks for your guidance! ๐Ÿ˜‡

Russell ; excellent ideas put into words that are good for anyone anywhere , rich or poor , any lifestyle or social identity. I particularly liked the end Russell when you mentioned the sad and lonely, just that you can reach out is fab . There is something that recently has enabled me to derive goodness from a source to do with loneliness but I shan't say what it is cos it won't be a good thing if I blart and show off about it ๐Ÿ˜Š and I must regard confidentiality too. Needless to say Russell your suggestions on helping others has been a salve to my soul , thankyou so much ๐Ÿคฉ

So super brilliant that Eckhert recognised your teaching. Sending love. You guys mean SO much. Thank you.xx

I LOVE both Eckhart & Russell!!! I have been inspired to build the Sacred Living Water Sanctuary & New Earth educational farm. Teaching people the tools for the New Earth & the Language of Water. Because “The time is NOW & WE are It!!!” This is the last quote in his epic book the New Earth. I took it to heart and now I’m building a Water Sanctuary for the greater good of ALL. We are located in paradise of the Appalachian mountains!!! Hey Russell wanna come out to play!!! Just give me a ring & head out this way!!! Blessings & Peace to ALL Beings!!! And Mercy for those who do not yet know!!! Hip hip hooray!!!!!

Love ur wise works you are making a difference in my life. I had lost everything now I’m building a new better life for myself but trying to follow your teachings and it’s working I’m making leaps and bounds ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Envy is just projecting your potential on somebody else. I love that. But you never know what hidden struggles a person has. I think of that first. Some of the brightest smiles are masks. Some people have everything and yet can't find their inner peace. Others delight in each moment. Bask in their smile.

‘I had an epiphany that laughter was light and light was was laughter, and that this was the secret of the universe’ ( Goldfinch , Donna Tartt)โค๏ธ

So many, but Brene's quoting of TR's inspirational speech about daring greatly has to be up there... "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again... and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly...."

I really enjoy watching your videos. I watch them back when I need some help to refocus and reset. I suffer from anxiety, depression and bipolar and these along with God my yoga and meditation are centring me more. Thanks Russell.

Hi Russell I really enjoy your videos. I am also a fellow BJJ purple belt. I have learnt more about myself via BJJ than any other medium. I thought BJJ was about self protection and fitness. It is really about total acceptance, service and brotherly love. OSS

I love these video's. My only observation I wish to share is that I find it easier to absorb when you are wearing quieter colours on your clothing. It is also easier to read your words as well with a one colour contrast behind if I do not have my headphones with me. Thank you and have a wonderful day

Thank you Russell...! You help me so much and you put something very healing out into the world.

Your videos are always so enlightening and the way you have with words is mesmerizing

“Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.” - Buddha. Also a favorite that fits your video theme - Ego says: once everything falls into place, I will find peace. Spirit says: Find peace, and everything will fall into place. Not sure where that ones from.

"Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground." Rumi

Still remember Eckhart's web class with Oprah 10 years ago. Great stuff. The Pain Body. We've all come a long way since then. Love ya!

“I was not the chocolate milkshake, I was the straw” ~ Melissie Jolly founder of Colour Mirrors - a psychology of colour

I like what you have to say because it resonates with truth. Also, I feel that you truly believe in what you are saying and that makes all the difference. The good desire for others is sincerely reflected in how you speak. Thank you.

Yes RB, YES! Thank you for your thoughts. Your understanding of Marianne Williamson is helpful to me, and I hope others. โค

She’s amazing, educated, articulate, speaks common sense with a heart. โค๏ธ

I think Russell we all need a full healing, even if we are not sick, Everyone needs to feel better and we should all seek out healing in reiki or retreat or Dharma, or connection, mind responds to this effectively it's a fact, I truly believe I have come across so many people who feel they are missing something or someone, they are! They need the spiritual existence โค๏ธโค๏ธ

I love her she is smart and compassionate.

I just started listening to your podcast this week. I listen on my way to and from work, and I love it! Thank you for being be real, for being raw!

"A healing crystal in every home." MW2020

great comments! we in the United States do indeed need to acknowledge the emotional and spiritual elements that so profoundly influence the trajectory of political discourse and alliances, preferably voiced in an open, authentic, and unapologetic manner

Hi Russell please highlight the plight of the people of Kashmir.

I believe the masses are not quite ready and able to fully embrace her for our president. Her views on dark energy or dark influence are spot on though, and need to be spread.

i miss the radio x show

Definitely, extremely focussed intelligent with a clear mind .leadership excellence. Issue will be people actually listening to her . You know they haven’t when they reduce her to woo woo .

Perfect time for HER Perfect time for US

I do hate antiquated political systems of corrupt puppeteers — change is dynamic - let’s keep moving for a better worldwide practice- we are only here for short intervals and as a whole, the human race has not been exemplary. One step- one voice that lights the fire within others. Yes, working to rid our systemic malaise is a very good and bright thought.

Not a fan of Marianne Williamson. She is passionate however isn't a very good speaker. She presents herself as being unstable where Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren present themselves as much more grounded with more experience.

Oh my goodness Russell--- in my humble opinion (and I say this with love in my heart) you need another good dose of Candace Owens! To say that the Republican Party stirs up the rage, anger and hate.....?? OMG....who killed Seth Rich--- not a Republican. Who lied and created hate among races saying he was attacked by MAGA supporters who put a lynch around his neck? Jussie Smollet--- NOT a Republican, but indeed tied to a Democratic candidate! I can't even list all of it...... Who shot and tried to kill a Republican Senator who was innocently playing baseball with companions.....YES, another Democratic hate and anger-filled event! They actually tried to take his life! Come on now, pretty please, get the facts straight. You have good ideals, but facts aren't supported by your ideals and thoughts. Love you though and know too that the longer you have children and a wife, the more you'll begin to see the truth and the light-- not just the light. xoxo <3

No she supports capitalism the present system that gives us war, poverty, homelessness, starvation, have and have nots, inequality etc. No if we want serious change we need a party standing on the ticket of change, a Resource Based Economy as proposed by www.thevenusproject.com and the Zeitgeist Movement and Money free party. Vote red or blue nothing changes, vote to share the land and decisions everything changes

If you see a table as a table the answer is likely no. Sadly we are not ready for MW any more than we were ready for that Jesus character. We don't want to be saved we want to persist.

Yes, because good policies alone will not defeat Trump. We need her conscious leadership. We need someone that understands the root cause of our issues and is not afraid to call them out and offer detailed solutions.

but she look like michael jackson in some of his angle however but i still will learn as i observe any way cant just say yes for i have my own set of criteria too,, knowing things i dont just easily say ok... ๐Ÿ˜

Just looked out my window and saw a ginormous Trump flag flying from my adjoining neighbor’s door. Maybe I should heed some of Marianne’s advice. Been reading her for over 25 years. She really helped me when I was very early in sobriety! I am just smiling and waving as always to my neighbor and reciting to myself, “everyone has the right to their own opinion and I am going to accept that and be kind regardless is I like it or not!”

mmmm...I understand and I do agreed to certain extended what are you saying. However, I am not so sure in other ways.

I like Brand but the definition given by him Is grossly the opposite in regards to Repblician's dispoistion of anger, agression, etc...that is the DEMS. Because Brand is a product of HOLLYWOOD thus giving this exaggerating definition of the Rep side is expected. He is way off basis here.

It would be a beautiful day indeed to have a leader who is of a spiritual bent, but unfortunately it’s the unknown faces behind the scenes, pulling the strings, that stand in the way of true progress in any spiritual way.

"words words," as in Hamlet ,written by Shakespeare ,before Ophelia drowned herself,"dont be a word monger Hamlet...." nothing is new under the sunsets repeated again and again

I like to hear her interject some of her ideas into the debate but NOT presidential material. Please Russell these are serious times.

I think you love to hear yourself talk.. and you know what I love to hear you talk also!! ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you for sharing your wisdom.

I believe we all share the one heart. I feel these actions are the rising of the darkness we all have within. When one hurts, suffers or creates pain amoung us, we all feel this on some level. It's effect on you is an indicator of where your vibration sits. As we recognise our own darkness, take the time to love it, accept it and acknowledge it. When we totally love all parts of self, this is where the healing begins and from here it radiates through us all.

I’ve been working on myself; however, I will work harder to catch my dark side and convert the conversation in my mind to a more peaceful and loving dialogue!! We are all connected. ๐Ÿฆ‹

Brilliant intriguing thought provoking..humble and genius.. Wisdom in you normally only shared by our elders.. More rather than less would be awesome Thank you Russell x Brilliant share x

I hear this a bit in how Mayor Pete talks ... coming from love, compassion and humility and often saying each of us has the capacity for good and bad (for all of it) before talking about the importance of upgrading the conversation or, as he says, "changing the channel."

Russell Brand your trew news were more to the point, i miss that and activism. Spirituality, philosophy its all great but it is also a long conversations about 'knowing that we know nothing only' dressed up in a fancy words ๐Ÿคจ. As for the shooting and hate in america it is a mixture of broken system, inequality, lack of education and of course lack of weapon regulations.

How do you convince a couple of generations that have placed value on 'things' that the solution is to strive for connection? The Jones have a lot to answer for!

Russell as always you make wonderful points

The more "love and light" being pumped out by these new agers the more "hate and darkness" are automatically produced to balance the system... that's the insanity of the "love and light" culture. They do not in the rank and file understand natural law, but the leaders certainly do and a certainly insane.... come back to the center, back into balance. Stop embracing the extremes, even it seems "extremely nice" because its is the trap of polarity.

I believe we are all connected, which is why it makes so many people sick and heartbroken..

What we need is a society that does not allow guns, I am afraid that I feel philosophy will not stop this. It is not about working on ourselves. That will not help those people who are disturbed or believe in hate. Love and kindness is ace obviously but the things that create the violence such as poverty, lack of education, lack of services etc need to be tackled head on. I am not only talking about gun violence but knife crime etc as well.

It’s taking God and all morals out of our society ๐Ÿ˜ž

It's very simple, remove the value on human life, animal life, life in general, violence goes up and societies break down. The evidence of that is all around perpuated and dimished by loveless economics. The one thing I'm fairly sure of, is that these cycles were supposed to of been broken by now, but instead 'we' all of us have allowed the most mad of men into greater positions of power, and they will stop at nothing to keep things as they are, which includes degenerating standards many assumed would improve not get worse....

yeah about that...when the unicorn pissing skittles shows up to eradicate all hate...I'll think about not carrying a sidearm..until then I'll keep training and maintaining safety and proficiency protocols just in case the guy shooting up the store doesn't share the one love mentality as we do...

Marisa Pennington I love this guys podcasts, (had me pic took wiv him once too!) this one made me think of you sweetie. Xx

It's called freewill and choice to govern yourself... People unfortunately choose to be bad... It really steams from neglect at home and some angry way of getting attention good or bad people want their ego's massaged. Get rid of ego things that are used as weapons are also useful to our everyday life's... Would it make sense to ban an item which poses no harm only in the hands of a defiant who wants to do harm.... We need to tackle behaviour plain and simple.

ฤฐn religion first Brothers killed each other for Darwin we are the most intelligent animals so think about the Scala who is on the top? ฤฐt us so somehow to survive instinctly we got that which is not deniable. .this is where it is coming from my friends

Sorry I think there is a gap in the recording. You start by saying that we think we are led by the decision making processes of our own mind, which should lead to a BUT, it seems that we are being led by sources that are external.. but after stating the point about our own mind there is a jump to forces external in a new sentence. etc.. Am I right? Could you please elaborate on the external forces. Really interesting stuff.

A great book to read . Change your thoughts change your life by wayne dwyer

If we become more empathic towards animals, we might learn to love people enough to not to want to kill them. It's all connected.

I love you man...but most of what you say is what we already know....or the majority of us do. Please find a better way to give your most gorgeous being to others. Like maybe open a Russell Brand Centre for people who are going through what thou hast been through. You have probably done that though ……...…...………..X

how does a person with a huge gun manage to get into a shopping centre with heaps of people there & cameras everywhere in such a populated area ???

But to apply this solution there has to be population co teol to stop the fighting of resources!

It is also to do with too much stress hormones to the brain - too much and you can have a meltdown - when problems come keep the brain calm - it thinks betters this way and solves problems and learns always have creative thinking ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I believe there are many people who are very upset with their lives and what the world has become, causing them to feel held back. Many people lash out with violence because they feel as if they were backed into a corner by the world around them. Many don't know how to process the anger and negative emotions that this creates in them. Changes need to be made to our world to make it a more positive and enjoyable existence, not just a change in the people. Most people are heavily affected by their environment when it comes to their development as a person. A change in surroundings causes a change in perception of life and it's value.

There is a book, 1958 I believe, called "The Waste Makers" i don't remember the author but it shows very clearly the origins of the growing ability for the very few, to coerce the very many..

Thanks for sharing this conversation. Always a few words of wisdom that we need. Keep doing what you are doing.

Amazing person. What a long way Russell has come these days.

WOW! I've been clean a few years now but this made me remember, took me back. I'm so lucky I got away from the lifestyle of addiction. It's hard work like but not as hard as the daily grind of earning and scoring and just taking lots of stuff for granted that really shocks other people. This video has made me even more appreciative of my new life.

Nothing to add but a heartfelt thanks....

Brilliant topic to cover, thanks for sharing. I am shocked how so many judge the homeless in society. One time I was walking towards a man that was homeless to give him some money but then this other man walked towards him stood in front and just looked him up and down with disgust. I thought how dare you, you do not know this man and his life and where his life had been before this point. Not all homeless people are addicts, or alcoholics. Most like in Brighton have come from the care system. If they are addicts this is an illness like any other illness and needs to have the support and necessary treatment like any other illness. If you do not want to give money then other option is to offer some food and a soft or hot drink. If you live in the area and have spare clothing especially coats then offer them to these people, a simple act of kindness can go a long way ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Love Russel Brand now.

It's so sad to see this vast difference between the two worlds.. I feel lucky, but guilty at the same time. It's paradoxical. Fair dues for getting out of it Russell

Love the way you Educate people Russell keep the good work up. Xx

We are all one pay check , one choice good or bad , away from being homeless , who are we to judge .

Looking forward to listening to this one ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

This really struck a chord with me..I'm an addict in recovery and I still live in the area I was in when I was in active use..I still see people (occasionally ) who I know from that period of my life..I always stop and have a chat..If they're not on their way to do what they gotta do! I can be sat in a car with my mum at traffic lights or whatever and it amazes and saddens me that there is literally two separate world's side by side that most ordinary people never acknowledge. .its there..right by your side every single moment of every day..its I'd never known addiction I'd probably still be blissfully unaware of the reality of some people's existence

This is something that used to take up a lot of time running around in my mind. I called it the Undercurrent of Society

It's also how people come to be sitting there that shows our systems to be a problem. A young woman over 18 was sitting outside Sainsbury's. When I asked her what has happened, she said she had been evicted from her council home when her mother died. They wouldn't transfer the tenancy. She was also vulnerable with a mental health problem. People were buying her food but where is her safety net? Inside Sainsbury's is a large container for customers to leave contributions to the food bank.

Breakdown in social cohesion?? When was it unified!?! Non of it makes sense. Ramblings of champagne socialists . Hearts in the right place but you do oh so much more damage!!

“Flowing on top of human suffering “ Russell Brand

I remember taking school kids to a museum in London and they saw people down and out on the street and laughed at them. I talked to the kids saying that anyone of us could be in that person's place if things go wrong. Just have some compassion for them. I don't know really what they thought as it was a fleeting moment.

Am I missing something? I've had no pods updated since June 22nd ๐Ÿค”

When I walk the street with no fear my view is totally different. Taken me years to reprogram. Might be an ordinary walk to you, but to me I see every gate and fence that's latched or unlatched every shoe hung over a powerline every light in someones porch every alley way that may be coming up every escape route every possible scenario of any sort.

So what is the solution, an equality. But then what standard of sameness do we agree on?

Hey Russell Brand I'm down river! yonder the Pang white toll, moored to the Toad. Aboard a pearly queen is where thee be, pop by and drink some tea?

I wrote this about Jade when she died and read it again because of that tv show about her. Reading it made me sad and angry again. Let me know what you think

For Jade
March 27th, 2009

When my Mum first got cancer I mustโ€™ve been around the age Jadeโ€™s eldest son is now. Too young, in fact, to properly comprehend what was happening, only old enough to sense the tingling presence of fear, the averted looks, the stifled, thin lipped sympathy and muddled, neighbourly compassion. My Mum, Thank God, did not die and whilst her cancer returned several times; each time more frightening for me as my innocence waned to be replaced with dread, she lives still, so I can but imagine the sad confusion of the two bereaved boys.

I knew their Mother, Jade Goody, not especially well, but Jadeโ€™s defining characteristic was her easy warmth that ingenuously enveloped folk, so perhaps like many people I felt more engaged by her than normal and feel more saddened by her death than I ought. I dislike the fetishisation of grief that accompanied the death of Jadeโ€™s forebear, The Princess of Wales, it makes me uncomfortable as I query its sincerity. Sentimentality is often called the unearned emotion and intrusive carnivals of public mourning unsettle me. In the case of Jade Goody however it is understandable to feel morose, she was a young mum from an awful background who got a break and shrewdly capitalised on it.

For a time we shared management and we met when she came to see several shows of mine at the Edinburgh festival about five years ago. We all hung out, me my Mum, Jade, some people from the agency and a few of my mates. She was a right laugh, she joined in with everyone and created a garrulous giddy vibe in bars and cars that elevated the perfunctory time between shows into something which retrospectively seems more special now than it did then. Most of all though I was impressed with how she formed an immediate and genuinely sweet bond with my Mother, chuckling and chatting with the effortless intimacy that strong yet tender women frequently conjure and which has umbrellad me from anxiety throughout my life. She also came on a few of my dopey TV shows in later years where she filled the room with her ebullience and wicked laugh connecting with the audience in a way that most skilled showman can only dream of.

One of the charges often levelled at Jade was that she was just a normal girl with no trade or practiced skills. Well people didnโ€™t care and our heroes are not prescribed to us, we have the right to choose them and the people chose Jade. Fame has long been bequeathed by virtue of wealth and birth and this was the first generation where it was democratically distributed by that most lowbrow of modern phenomena โ€“ Reality Television. She was a person who, I think due to her class always had the propensity to irk people. When Big Brother 3 made her famous she was vilified in the paper and bullied in the house but through her spirit she won people back round and became a kind of Primark Princess with perfumes and fitness videos and endless media coverage โ€“ because people were interested in her. They remain interested. One of my best friends, a woman in her mid twenties is genuinely heartbroken at the death of Jade, herself a Mother from a working Class background she obviously connects with this sad narrative in a way that she doesnโ€™t seem to with J-Lo or Jennifer Aniston or Posh Spice most likely because of Jadeโ€™s authenticity and accessibility.

I was working on a Celebrity Big Brother spin off show when Jade returned to the house and through unschooled social clumsiness blundered into a whooped up race row. As I said at the time, the incident where Shilpa Shetti was poorly treated by a group of young women was not an example of the sickening scourge of racism but simply a daft lack of education. Jade was a tough girl but utterly lacking in the malice upon which true prejudice depends. The slick of spilled newspaper ink and the cathode conveyed H-bomb that followed this innocuous event was the real crime. Jade was made the focus of a debilitating wave of righteous loathing and condemnation, a gleefully indignant storm of trumped up wrath that served the cause of racial harmony not one iota; but that was never itโ€™s intention. The intention was sacrifice. Well now Jade Goody is no more. Claimed by cancer, a disease often brought on by extreme stress. When my mother was sick someone unkindly informed me that her illness was my fault, induced by my bad behaviour and for a long time I believed it.

Iโ€™m glad that Jadeโ€™s death has been handled with saccharine mittens by the papers, she lived and died in the glare of their interest and doubtless benefited from it hugely at times. I recall her tearstained face pegged across some rag as she endlessly sought to be forgiven by the media her misconstrued conduct had so incensed and it made me a little angry. She wanted to be accepted, loved, redeemed, and now through her early death, she is. I hope some of the lessons of this modern Fairy Tale are learned, that the people who aspired to be like Jade observe the price she paid. I hope her sons are ok and that on some imperceptible level contrition is felt by the media that gave Jade Goody everything.
And I mean everything.

Spot on. And 10 years later I still cry for Jade, for her children who no longer have their beautiful mum in their lives and for her friends who miss her vibrancy, laughter and joyous approach to life. Every person deserves happiness, I do feel Jade felt that for a little of her time here on Earth. Not as much as she should have though. Thanks as always for your wisdom. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

When we met Russell at your show in Brighton i told you i too had gone through cancer twice you were so gracious to me and spoke of your mum i had cancer the same time as Jade (and Kylie Minogue as well as Farrah Fawcett) I'm so blessed to still be here i know im one of the lucky ones but iv never forgotten Jade all her friends and family who love and miss her she was a ray of sunshine and was a beautiful dignified lady who was taken far too soon and who had so much more fun to share with us all she was my inspiration

Beautiful words Russell. I was always a fan of Jade until cancer cruelly took her away. She will never be forgotten ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

Beautifully written Russell. Always liked Jade and was saddened when she passed of this dreaded illness.

What a beautifully compassionate and deeply understanding piece of pure love - thank you Russell Brand. The only pity is that Jade didn't get to read this xx

Beautifully put, I always loved Jades bubbly personality and in such a short space of time she impacted alot of peoples life. If there is anything positive and meaningful to come from her death is that its brought awareness to many women with cervical cancer. I hope her boys live strong ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™

Loved her from the first moment - what you saw is what you got - beautiful person - much love for your wonderful words xx

Beautifully written ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Jade did suffer at the hands of the media and society but her strength and character was what they were always trying to pull apart and they NEVER succeeded. As graceful as a person can possibly pass on, Jade did just that and she will forever be a brave, courageous and iconic woman in my eyes.

WOW Russell awesome! Your recollections really paint a picture of your friend, feel as if I knew her and from your recall, she is that type of person you would enjoy being around and knowing and calling a friend ...sadly taken too soon, Cancer sucks! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Jeff Brazier has brought their sons up wonderfully. He's trained in child bereavement & raises money for charities helping bereaved kids. Jade would be so chuffed knowing how they've both turned out. They are her true legacy.

Thank you for bring her character to life yet again (and in all its glory). A beautiful soul here to teach us in so many ways. Jade touched so many ๐Ÿ’•

There was always something about Jade that was hard to pin. She seemed fun, witty, a bit mouthy but there was also a vulnerability that came across. I think a nation mourned her passing as it was just so wrong. She was too young, had to much to give, had two beautiful sons. But I always have regular smear tests and if anything can come from Jades life and death is that it can change in a heartbeat.

So well said Russell... I’ve had the pleasure of meeting your Mum. She comes in to the Deli I work with called Abigails with your Aunt. What a beautiful, polite and warm women she is. You must be very proud of her xx

Beautiful words that eloquently sum up a very sad tale. I wasn’t a fan of Jade Goody, to be honest, I’m still not a fan of her celebrity. I do remember her being quoted as saying she would spend what time she had left making as much money to leave her boys as she could. When faced with an utterly tragic and desperate set of circumstances, her focus was providing for her children after her inevitable death. I found the strength she showed as utterly inspirational, and something I think that will always define her in my eyes.

Beautiful words as always, Jade had the most awful childhood surrounded by drugs and alcohol but triumphed when given an opportunity and did everything she could for her boys she should be so proud of what she became in her short life โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

I remember, she was a ๐ŸŒŸ and is now a ๐ŸŒŸ. I felt proud how she turned it around and went to India. I felt cross with Big brother for playing it up. I was broken hearted for her death. I was proud of her perfumes. I’m sad for her lads. May she rest in Peace. I survived cancer 19 years it can be done if caught in time.

I remember watching Jade from her being a nobody to becoming a somebody, it certainly was a journey for her. She was hilarious she adored her boys. Despite her upbringing and the papers tales those boys were given the best life and now live and remember her. Cancer is a terrible illness and no one should suffer the way anyone does with cancer. I applaud anyone with it and survives and the families who have to watch their loved ones in pain. You are hero’s beautiful selfless heros ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™

I followed Jades story online from the US. She was the same age as I and I was also a young mother. I felt so deeply for her and her boys.

I didn’t know Jade but the way you write, gives me hope and I feel so very touched by this piece.

Your words are so powerful. I remember hearing of Jades passing, it was Mother’s Day. I’ll never forget it.

Well written! Well said! Such a shame though, Jade went through what she did, then gained acceptance on her death!

I live in New Zealand I don’t no anything about jade goodly I can’t picture her face! But reading your letter to her makes me want to give her a big cuddle I have done energeticly whilst reading about her. She back only with the source now and all the crap this world connects us too as fallen away from her i envy her true freedom now. Great words Russell your a good friend to all x peace

Stress is such a major factor when it comes to cancer. I felt sad for her and children when she passed. She wasn’t a bad person at all- although who can judge that have never met her- positively or negatively. That’s what pisses me off. All we know for sure is that she died from an awful disease that I’ve also had the displeasure of too. 3 months into remission and my two children still have their mum. I tried to ask you , Russell why you felt resentment towards your mum when she had cancer- now I understand. I hope that little boy inside of you has been forgiven. Your tentative and eloquent message for Jade was lovely . May you always be a shining light in a dark world. ๐Ÿ’•

Lovely words for a troubled soul. I watched part 1 of the documentary and was disgusted with the journalists involved; they didn't seem contrite to me.

Thanks for sharing your article Russell. Bang to rights , no one could have written this any better ; it captures everything I have struggled to put into words ๐Ÿ˜Š Jade has a beautiful soul ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks Russell, love and lack of it is a big problem, mother’s love fathers love ,sisters love brothers love an extended family love, all this love is slowly dying , ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹

Culture is everything. Could you imagine how awesome our lives could be if We all just worked on changing our perspectives to a more loving and forgiving society

Amen Russell! You explained the darkness of the human conditions in our humanity and put it so eloquently. Thank you!

I admire the empathy. I think it’s very important for everyone to understand one thing. Even if you don’t agree with someone, you don’t have to hate them.

We are having this problem because everybody is coming here for the American dream. Money!!!! My parents were immigrants one from Germany and one from Mexico. Both their trauma leaked into me. Physically and spiritually. While my father came for refuge I believe my mother came for money, out of desperation. Another form of refuge. We have to consciously live out of love. Abandoning and ignoring our kids is not love and that’s where it starts so we need to stop blaming and get to the solutions.

I feel sad that this happened... but this is not just a thing about gun registry ... I think this is also about access to mental and physical care and education ... « For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them » Thomas more

I’m not convinced it’s nothing to do with creating the problem and offering the solution... taking away the rights of the Americans to bear arms seems to be a way of becoming more powerful. Just my humble grumble..

I think the tools that we use to express our negative thoughts & feelings are beyong our ability or skills to control. Also, we are so many that we have outgrown our 'natural' desire to protect the species, and it's less and less likely that we value human life. And, we are going through a period of uncontrollable changes (aka, another revolution) which is scary for many amongst us. Wish I could see how humans grow in the next century!

That made an anxiety attack come on for me... So strange! Great words though.

Great perspectives yet never quite conclusive or remedied beyond the narrative .

Constantly being conscious of your thoughts and actions is so important ♥๏ธ

We are trying very hard to be that kind of community here in Aotearoa, NZ. We have discrimination laws that are enforced and supported by the majority of our communities plus recently passed a law to make semi-automatic guns illegal due to that Australian who came here and slaughtered 51people at prayer. So have faith there are better countries in the world than say...America.

People who feel disaffected, undervalued and unsure of their role in society can feel anxiety, depression and rage. For many people their everyday lives are mapped out for them and not by them, increasing a feeling of helplessness. We all need time to just be quiet, but our society dictates our days, weeks, months and years so if you're not in a position you're happy with .....๐Ÿ˜”

You're fucking brilliant! I'd love to have 5 minutes alone to chat with you! Go on, continue living your purpose, use your platform. You are brilliant!

There is absolutely nothing to say that we don't, as humans, have conscious agency over our decisions. It is, however, true that the mechanisms underlying the production of thought are beyond the agency of our control - a suitable analogy would be 'our conscious agency is like that of a captain of a ship (conscious agency) upon the sea (environment); able to observe and navigate the waves using any knowledge to hand, but unable to dictate the speed of the ship (speed of thought) or the structure of the ship itself (the body). Make no mistake, with enough knowledge of a persons knowledge and disposition you may be able to predict said decision making within a certain range of error - however, this is limited as novel occurrences of cognitive spontaneity/inspiration are also a capacity of the mind. Neuroscientists do not possess a complete and irrefutable framework of human decision making as it currently stands, though the have come incredibly far in understanding the biological machinations at work during cognition. (Imo) Epistemological philosophers and social scientists are more likely to provide a more insightful view of decision making than the neuroscientists - particularly as it is their exclusive business to investigate the nature of decision making in an existential/social context .

I agree with most of it. I believe permaculture and being involved nature is a way to find ones self and understanding.

I believe the disrespect for mental health is a major contributor to what you are talking about: The fact that mental health is not covered equal to that of physical health under most insurance coverages is telling. I have very good health insurance, and it still doesn’t cover mental health as it should. I can only imagine what those with lower coverage insurance programs do not receive For mental health. We are fighting more than the stigma that comes from mental health issues. We don’t have basic health needs taken care of in this country, because so much of our mental health affects our physical health. It would be wise to see the worth in providing mental healthcare equal to that of physical healthcare. Haven’t we had enough of school shootings, mass shootings, and suicided? We are not reaching these people fast enough, because we do not respect and honor mental health! We stigmatize it. It’s not even covered under insurance as it should be under basic plans. Think of it this way how different would our social constructs be if going to a Physiatrist was like going to get your teeth cleaned- Stigma gone- fully covered.

As a unit, as both the drop in the ocean and the ocean itself the battle between polarities must be resolved within ones self. When we shift from the void within that is always craving to be filled by something to the light which is then only to be shared we become light houses of love and transformation that raises the vibration of the whole. Interesting to know at what point do we reach quantum vibration shift so that the vibration and thought process of mass consciousness is then raised. What do the outliers indicate about the whole? Where the greatest change is needed.....

Maybe we, post-war generations in the west, were very lucky to grow up and live in the most peaceful of all times. Never before in European history has there been such a long period without war. I also thought we were on the right way and we got rid of old time politics and ideologies but they seem more alive than ever. At 58 I'm still an optimist but I can't rule out the possibility that the past 70 years or so were exceptional, and everything will go back to normal, meaning primitive tribal thinking, greed and vanity, war and destruction. I can only hope more people like you keep enlightening us.

We keep trying to solve social problems by focusing on individuals. (Sending psychology to do sociology's job.) A mantra I got in meditation a long time ago (actually upon awakening today too now that I think of it) is "All are ONE ~ I am one of all ~ I am ONE." The actions of an individual emerge from the collective consciousness of the many. In an odd way, this means we can only look at evildoers and the sin eaters for the rest of us and so have some compassion. I am fully away that dt is a tool (a real tool at that) created by social forces with some eventual positive outcome -- the giant poop of a society with a belly full of sick.

It is some bullshit that these things continue to happen and it is so hard not to get pulled down by the injustice of it all. I found that my only response must be to love harder. I believe we are sick. Humans are not doing so well. We are disconnected from ourselves, we are disconnected from each other, from our Earth, and from some spiritual awareness. I find that if I make it my job to love, if I make it the actual work that I am here to do, then perhaps I can make a difference by connecting with everyone I meet and really being present with them. We have SO many broken systems that do not serve us or the planet any longer and SO much needs to change. We must be proactive in finding viable solutions for these wrongs. But perhaps if the humans got what they were really longing for all of this might stop. This is just how I see things from my prospective and how I keep my sanity in the face of all of this destruction. Keep doing the good work you are doing! You ARE making a difference. LOVE HARDER!!!

Russell, what you have just stated makes a lot of sense and you kept the delivery simple About changing the climate, moving away from hate, being a positive force and helping each other. Fill our lives up with love and being of service. Yes I like what you said, it makes sense to me. Thank you โค

The most advanced nations haved reached the top of Maslow's hierarchy of needs but modern society cannot provide whats needed for the existential. Growth is a natural momentum for human kind but its stalling at the level that prevents nihilism and foster self actualization and meeting spiritual needs. These same countries have people with high levels of empathy and wanting to protect/fix their community, not just immediate families..a perversion if this is trying to "help" through force or coercion or even violence. We are also more connected than ever. The perversion of this is the anxiety of catestrophic news e.g. population over growth, enviornmental disaster etc. Heightened empathy can also mean heightened anxiety and wanting to control everything...even dehumanizing others due to overwhelming feelings of the world's hopelessness as a self protective mechanism.

Samscaras. We become triggered and naturally carry out a script we've been programmed with and are unconsciously unaware of. Yes, sir.

We are lacking a connection!!! Mental illness.... psychological disorders , trauma...etc.....our Health care is reactive NOT proactive!!!

Yes! Incredible value๐Ÿ’—. Thank you Russell๐Ÿ’ž! I’ve never been politically inclined. She has really taught me so much about American History, our democracy, our civic duty as Americans, and the corporate overreach. I’m inspired and would love her to get into next debates! Please give even a dollar to be a unique donor. secure.actblue.com/donate/marianne-williamson-2020-committee

I for one am beyond elated to see Marianne cutting thru the vitriol of our current political discourse. Her brand of healing and spirituality is potent, and it’s delivering an awakening for love that is long overdue. I loved her on your podcast from last fall. If you haven’t already, please have her on again. Her message needs to be heard. And with some luck and a lot of hard work by a lot of people- she will be our next president. ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’–

The best candidate by far. What a gift. A spiritual candidate with as much Grace and intelligence as Marianne has is amazing to me. What a great interview.

Russell Brand you told Gabore Mate you were doing your best and it was so sincere. The truth resonates and I felt grateful for you and to you for what your doing with the platform you have. I don’t know if Marianne Williamson will win, but I do believe that she will turn many lights on in the process . We can speculate about what she is up against and on the surface of things it may appear to be a long shot, but love is a super power and she knows it. Let love and light restore the plan on earth.

Yeeeeaaaah Russel! Me and my buddies were there listening to this wonderful discussion. Thank you for using your platform to speak so boldly and truthfully, spreading the message of connectedness and supporting individual and collective empowerment for the greater good of all that there is! Right on brother!

"Compassion, community and kindness" are not party political concepts, they are universal. The question is how to govern in practical terms for the entire electorate whilst keeping these principles in mind.

Absolutely the deepest thinker among any of them, and warm and relatable and fiery at the same time! ♥๏ธher

Yes! She brings compassionate intelligence towards the goal of a Conscious America. She had real plans behind her big ideas and fully gets to the root cause of our issues. #bigtruth

Love that thing your wearing round your shoulders. And am also thrilled to hear this woman in politics and what she is bringing to the table.

Love what u stand for and love what Marianne Williamson stands for. May the force be with you. The world needs change.

She is the change of consciousness we need. More positivity love and caring. We are all energy and at this time t negativity, aggression and hate has the upper hand and Trump is leading this. I have followed Marianne and read her books for years and would dearly love to see her become president.

Yes! I absolutely support Marianne. I love the way I totally relate and understand everything all the various supporters are saying. We all see/feel the same things. This is an amazing time! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒŽ

Please research the rest of what she's said and not only the last few months' worth thank you ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Marianne Williamson speaks for the hearts of many citizens who have felt disempowered, been unfarily treated and not supported; that they have not had a voice - until now. Not only that, she speaks openly of fairness, kindness, compassion and love. She calls out the truth to people's conscience until wrongdoings cannot be hidden anymore, cannot be denied. The majority of people are ready for this!

Unfortunately the majority of Americans are not enlightened enough for a candidate like Marianne. They are too entrenched in a monetary, fear based reality. Here love tends to be a word with no emotion or feeling and apathy is increasing while empathy and compassion are waning. Please send thoughts and donations in the form of positive intent c/o the disunified states of America. โ˜ฎ๏ธ

Bravo. We talk the talk. Meditate with the waterfall of words, we talk of wanting love and the absolute connection between us BUT are WE ready to walk the walk? Honestly, I don’t know. I would however like to find out.

I agree it is great that she is introducing thought provoking speak on such a politically powerful stage. I've heard nasty things said about her but I think it stems from uncomfortabilty.....it's uncomfortabilty that we as humans need to think and talk about.

Marianne Williamson brings tremendous value to the United States of America. There may never be another candidate willing to rise up and speak so candidly on behalf the American people and we must not miss this opportunity to elect a president who embodies the moral compass needed to lead us all towards a more peaceful world.

she brings incredible value in the way of Hope, truth, Fearless addressing of deep-rooted spiritual and psychological issues destroying our nation, Strongly advocating for our children, our elderly, going face to face with the NRA and big pharma. There are many untruths being spoken about Marianne Williamson. She challenges people's beliefs and makes them uncomfortable when asked to take a deep and fearless moral inventory. It seems that for most its easier to smear, mud sling and blame everyone else rather than starting with themselves to be the change they want to see. I love everything about Marianne Williamson and I stand by her and will put the truth out there to everyone who will listen

I think she’s an incredible woman, but this election isn’t hers this time. I’d love to see her run for Congress though

RUSSELL BRAND - Love your work. Would you please consider interviewing Lincoln Gergar, a radically different, Self-realized (IMO), ego-less, super-effective teacher/guide for those wanting to explore their whole being and live a much happier life in this moment? Thank you!

Brilliant, as always! She needs more contributions to get into the next debate ... if you want the conversation to stay deep, consider a one dollar contribution to her campaign ... she needs 20k more individual contributions to get back on that stage! I did it! And I felt better after I did. One dollar puts her one crucial step closer to that debate stage! #keeptruthcoming #marianne2020

She is Great! And should be on BERNIES Team!!!!!!!!! BERNIE 2020!!!!!!!!!! But do Love her! and the ideas of health.love and Planet!!!!

Best candidate for Presidency! Humanitarian activist perfect qualifications. Excellent thorough platform. Ability and desire to reach across the aisle, to unite, to make decisions for the common good, she can be trusted and counted on to do so. #WilliamsonForTheRealWin2020

Both parties have lost touch. We can respect peoples’ rights and be socially liberal, while still being fiscally conservative and honoring ALL of the bill of rights and constitution.... this is why I became a libertarian.

Hello Russel

And another thing! XD why on Good God's green earth does every spiritual documentary have people that believe that the way the system is set out was to intentionally enslave us?! Because honestly I doubt that's true!! I think we have done the best we could with what we have trying to create order and cooperation. It's not as simple as they think... We are beautiful kind souls trying to help each other.

Russell mate, please make this episode available on Spotify. I cannot get luminary in Germany. Please bro.

You message me back earlier. I did read it. Now I lost it before I could reply back. I just wanted to say thank you Mr. Brand for all the wonderful things you have brought into this world. Whether it's thru your motivational words, you stand up for what you believe in, important issues that touch your heart that speaks to you, you're very funny in your movies because you crack me everytime I watch one of your movies. I have not seen one of your stand up acts. I'm pretty sure you're just as funny or more. Sending Blessings to you and your family. Have a good rest of your week and have a good weekend.

This awakening and enlightenment is amazing to see in you Russell. Reinforces it in myself and that feel we are on the right path. Lots of inner and outer discovery to reach this level. Awesome man!

You really like water! I enjoy listening to you speak. Thank you.

For you, in your moment in time, for me, the moment is here, in Romania, at home, with my family, mindful of the same realisation ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sometimes I do, for instance when people treat me as if I am incapable when in fact I am. As we get older what we look like on the outside is not a reflection of our intelligence or ability to do things. People can be very condescending to older people. So I feel as though I have to let those people know about my success in life as a writer and in education. Other than that, as we age we stop trying to impress others because we have already proved to ourselves what we can do.

Russell, someone to have on your youtube show....Cameron Day, buddhist guy i know that truly understands what i get in this reality, and helps people break soul contracts with beings that control this dimension and the subconscious mind....very unique man, as many of us understand the true crimes being done to humanity on a level beyond this reality ... www.ascensionhelp.com

Really appreciate all your posts. You are such a wise and witty light to the world. <3 ๐Ÿ™‚

Nice to hear Russel trying poetry I really hope he practices alot (well done mate)

Love,I don't know if you are channelling when you speak, or if is an explosion of awakened expression. But do not stop. Our world needs this. Bless your Spirit.

Love your words Russell, but the music is distracting.

Sweetie..I must tell you..please do not dilute your gift upon the rocks of mediocrity..it dont suit ya..you was made for Great Things..as you know.!..You Gnostic you!...it does not belong,this magic in the constructs of smallness..For When He Is Weak..THEN..HE IS POWERFUL..and Powerfully attractive..an awakened Man..fully owning his Soul Purpose will be not called to speak small but instead soliloquize his inner world..such a mystery to us Ladies and so interestin!....obvs dont go all waco n shizz..but times are callin ya my Leige!..Its rather excitin!..x

Ego makes us, us. Managing it makes us humanely considerate. I love all these inputs, such a healthy channel. ๐Ÿ™‚

How genius is Russell, the guys on another level, if I could be half as enlightened as he is I would be doing something.

You always have an ego & it does serve a positive function. However if your ego takes over, you’re a slave to it. Balance, wisdom, love and respect for all beings is where we find peace. Yes, it’s always a choice, every second.

Russell Brand I’ll go with you to Peru to partake in the ayawaska ceremony to dissolve our egos with the DMT trip, I already know you are greatly interested in it as much as I am โค๏ธ

I have to wonder are most of his audience there to share in his perspectives or more so to infatuate with his celebrity status.

Russell, you speak truth, yet may I humbly suggest that you cease drinking water out of single-use plastic bottles? You could present such a great example to your admirers. Wouldn’t you be able to put that in your Show Ryder: reusable ceramic or glass water container. Thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

For some people it is healthy to have an "ego", it gives people character & there is Nothing wrong with that, as long as they are mindful of their actions & others it is perfectly Fine to have an ego. Spiritual people tend to say they have no ego, but you don't necessarily need to dissolve your ego to be spiritual. Society has a funny way of Labelling EVERYTHING to box people up into categories, people are better at doing that than actually being mindful of self & not taking things so seriously trying to tell/expect others how to be or act, imo. ๐Ÿ˜ŠโœŒ๐Ÿค˜

The best is to know the ego - find out what it is and what it does so you can find your center. Your spiritual trueness is always within you. The seek to control - opposing force of the ego is quite noticeable when we observe it. Be an observer. Go to your humble heart center and know you have oneness, you are special and you are the universe. Blessings. ๐Ÿ’ซโœจ๐Ÿ™

Fear is the movement away from what is...the isness...the fact...the act...the actual...what is actually taking place from moment to moment. Fear is the movement of inattention. The I, the me, the self, the so-called True or Higher Self, is the very movement of fear. Where there is even an iota of fear there is no Love or Wisdom...none whatsoever.

Sometimes, ok most times, I’m like “why can’t everyone drive like me? I mean really I’m awesome “

I say in meetings ALL THE TIME that I am like an etch-a-sketch drawn in every day -- shook vigorously overnight to have to start from scratch again every day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just to let yas know there is a joker who private messaged me pretending to be Russell Brand. He has the same picture of himself and looks pretty authentic. I told him I'd russelled him lol and said bye

Cornwall...ironic...I choose to surround myself with corn as well!

that's right. society teaches us to steriotype ourselves. We don't even need other people to do it. Your words ring true my friend. live on.

That would be a wonderful miracle! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Beautiful conversation. Seriously. I enjoy her thoughtfulness and take on our society. But no. She is not qualified. Enough already.

Yes! ๐Ÿ’ฏ I fully support Marianne Williamson for President! I have been listening to her talks for years and read some of her books. She is not a woo woo or a whacko. There is a lot of misinformation going around about her. People who don't do research and are content to pass on "hearsay". She is the most qualified candidate to get our country back on track. Our nation is sick... She can help. Those that are making fun of her and spreading hate about her do not understand.

The environment will not be saved with magical thinking , or positive affirmations. Spiritual inquiry , ones psychology , or “the enlightened mind”. May very well be vital for every human being , are a deeply personal endeavor.

I would cry with happiness if this happens! What a revolution we are apart of!!!

Beautiful conversation.....the U.S. and the world is starving for dialogue such as this.....these kinds of discussions open up minds to new ideas as well as help to pull people out of their reverie and old patterns of thinking that are not ultimately serving them personally or the cultures they live in <3

I wish! She would be amazing.

She is really good at marketing herself and some ideas but probably NOT a good idea for president. Interesting to see the comments on here. She lost credibility with me years ago with her thoughts on mental health...she has since changed her view however I don't find her authentic in the least no matter how many authenticity workshops she may lead.

@ Russell The act of loving ourselves, though, seems outside of time and space, so that it is available to us no matter what space we are in. In other words, it is just as possible to love yourself when you are stuck as it is to love yourself when you are free. At either end of the spectrum, loving ourselves seems like the only choice we have.

It was a BRILLIANT episode. Intense, Deep, and Intelligent questions and responses. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Very interesting conscious conversation....Nice to see actual intelligence applied to democracy and the problems of our time......very interesting conversation ....

Good one!! For the Religion part I feel it mainly parallels our pursuit of acceptance towards our own condition of self.. Our faith in ourselves, our ability to trust and confidently interpret our own instincts and intuitions... In my opinion..

Just finished watching the video version of this podcast Russell, very insightful thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ‘

A Course in Platitudes. Your weakest podcast ever. Zero rapport, zero content from that woman. She should go back to Hay House Radio. And you didn't look convinced either. Love ya but this was a fail.

@ Russell A person who has consciously worked through the whole tragedy of his own fate will recognize another’s suffering more clearly . . . He will not be scornful of other’s feelings, whatever their nature, because he can take his own feelings seriously. He surely will not help to keep the vicious circle of contempt turning. ~ Alice Miller

NO! She is a good person and seems very loving, BUT She thinks Julian Assange is a hacker and belongs in prison... If she is unaware of a false arrest of a major publisher she does not belong running the government... that is what we have now.

Oh wow! I can’t wait to listen to you both!!

TPTB will ensure that dopey-bollocks will get a second term

....between ME and Marianne...” there is the ego that shows his true colors.

Just watched Russell Brand's REBIRTH for a second time. So moving, true, funny and real. He is be-ing who he came here to be.๐Ÿ

No, but I do like and respect her and hope that Bernie gives her a place in his cabinet! ๐Ÿ˜

Interesting interview, but why such a microphones that create a distance between the two of you?

The #1 problem facing humanity today are those people who don't care enough to become well-informed, free of misinformation and disinformation, on all the major issues of today AND are not devoting their time, energy, resources, and talents to the political process, esp the campaigns, to make sure that only the most Loving/most Wise among us become our public servants. They have blood on their hands. They are complicit in the heinous crimes against humanity and Gaia Mother Earth. They can never ever dare speak of Love, Peace, Joy, or Creativity. The plutocratic families, the corporate oligarchs, and the international banksters, have got them exactly where they want them...out of their way.

Let us never have another president who thinks wonkiness is a liability, and opinions are as good as facts And, this whole 'to do' about Marianne being the 'only one' who talks about the 'root of the problem'? It's just not true. She hasn't said anything about Trump and the agitation of the American that hasn't already been said by every other politician and pundit with greater accuracy and precision.

Errrr while she may come across as ok in some areas she has some seriously dubious opinions about certain issues - please be careful RB

The best thing i've heard for weeks

I love you Russel Brand and I’m very honored to see you recover but I need to meet your wife honey!

Russell brand you are a spectacular genius, magnanimous, brilliant and I was mesmerized the first time I saw you perform for royalty. Bowing all the time...YOUR MAJESTY! NEVER SAW A COMEDIAN SO FUNNY

Love the bit at the end! ๐Ÿ˜€ Did you though, did you still manage to sneak a tiny bit of praise from the wife

I love that you speak honestly & openly, from the heart & from first hand experience, which means you empathise with others. This is currently lacking in politics. I also love that you check yourself, that you are mindful of your impact on the world & those around you - which is also lacking in politics. Change is needed and I believe change will come by having the right people, with the right attitudes, in the right jobs- compassion, honesty and love. Staying true to who you are makes for a leader people can believe in, so stay true to who you are Russell and Lead.

You are an exceptional man, you agreed to meet my daughter after your show, Abbi , my absolute world, it made here year and thank you so much.

Well said x everything you say is so true x your an inspiration x

I think he is one of the brilliant and caring people of our time. I would like to see him in some kind of policy making office.

Oh how the comedians in this world are here to lead us in this game. Through laughter: the fastest and most glorious ride to the truth. Love it. Well done.

Your energy, passion, and bloomin bang on sense and understanding is brilliant dude! Youre such a catalyst for change in this world, love it, love you, nice one! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ

His posts are inspirational and everything he says makes sense so yes!

Russell squirreled away enough nuts from hollywood and secured future nuts to purchase the luxury of speaking the bypass the system dialogue. How nice. Teach them how to bypass the system pragmatically while enduring normal life. Be specific, not scared, you have the nuts.

There are one or two politicians who genuinely do represent the spiritual ideals of love and respect for all people and the natural world, humility, non-violence, peaceful conflict resolution, compassion and understanding. And yes they are prepared to do it within the limitations of parliamentary democracy. If we all hold our nerve and don't let the fakes sway us, one of them might soon lead this country.... (JC4PM)

He would be a fabulous Prime minister.....The people would matter and , although I've lived in the U.S. for 30 years, if that happened, I would brave the cold and come back!

Yes there is a method to his madness. He’s great, he’s also a good mentor, you could be a great leader

The world needs to tap into the motivation Russel has, he could inspire change and cultivate ideas in the right minds, purely with the enthusiasm he has, he has the medium to empart his wildly intelligent opinion that envoke critical thought on relevant subjects, creating the potential for the catalist for change in politics should the right ears be listening and be open to the task.

You IS SO good at this!...and that glitter background is Life!..I have a serious glitter problem!..Love ya!...

Mad eccentric brilliant. A breathe of fresh air in this bland world we are being forced to live in. Everyone wants to be the same. The way forward is for everyone to be different and to shout about it.

Love your honesty about your ego it's very clear you have self Awareness and a understanding of your self..like yourself I work a 12 step program and it does work.Keep it simple doesn't mean we discard are gifts,talants and personality.Keep doing what your doing fella.๐Ÿ’ฏ

I would love to see that hapen even if im not english nor live in england.been following you for a long time and embrace yout ideals.you are a truly good person and sincere enought to rapresent others.you should try that and peoples should vote for you.

Russell, it is time for a.new.leader, a.new kind of world and you would. be the perfect person to lead the nation forward โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ

I guess nobody saw the video of him brushing his arm and hand against a 12 years olds breast in the park? They give us choice of illusion, but you can’t get to superstardom without messing with kids ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ sorry guys I had my own reservations for Russell Brand, Jim Carrey, and Keanu Reeves

Russell Brand in all honesty does speak for the majority not the minority and that is what is important. He would make a fantastic leader.

That translates to "i would rather stick to what im great at such as comedy and entertainment than take on politics".

I’d vote for you, unless Scotland was once again a free and independent country and I had no say in who is PM for England. No different to now then! ๐Ÿ˜† PM Russell Brand has a fine ring to it!

Congrats....what a great milestone......much better than a tombstone..... you are inspirational with your message and delivering people who too have a message of hope!

I did my family tree and found out Russell brand is my cousin! Keep up the good work and positivity โค

You're still beautiful my friend. Age is a gift that many people don't have the pleasure of grasping. Love ya bruv

Russell you've come a long way. I'm very proud of you. What you did took Moxy. I'm glad you're one of my fave actors!

This is indeed a milestone to be proud of. Congratulations to you for the commitment it takes to do this. Congratulations also to your body coach. May God continue to use you both to help others. โค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงก

Good Russell your a super star that people listen too well done and a great job. The beard is great too keep up the marvellous outstanding work and Fred speech about life problems, solutions and fixes. God bless! Your great

I'm in OA after reading recovery about 20 months ago... I have Joe's cook books... they are marvellous.. The men that made us well...

I am 15 1/2 years sober & you have been a great motivator for me and helped me learn a great deal about myself. Thank you! <3

Hey Russell, I'll throw your own words back at you... there's no comparison... you're both flawlessly, perfectly, uniquely you. My biggest struggle in the whole journey thing has been to not judge and compare how I look-- my body is still my prison. I love who I am, I love my energy, I love how I interact with people, but don't invite me to go to the beach with you cause I'll punch you in the face. Don't suggest that we be physically intimate in any way cause I'll block you and never speak to you again. My physical body mortifies me. Huh... just this one post really highlighted my insecurity, as always... thank you.

So much love for Fearne and her projects and uniting great people to inspire and help others. I listen to her podcasts every week and it’s been lovely to see you praise her and the team’s efforts

All is possible. When we work out how to use our personnel power . What a joy to see . X

I bought two of your books in audio and will be listening to them over the next couple of weeks. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

A beautiful transformation. You look much happier than decade old memories serve.

Two amazing inspirations, thank you ๐Ÿ––โค๐Ÿ––

Would love to hear your review of the book " celestine prophecy". Could you make that happen? I am hoping with the amount of msgs you receive that you or your administration is able to answer a potential existential admirer such as myself. Every one NEEDS a guru. However will a guru respond intimately with all you balance in your life . Of course i could just end up in peru with a shaman and answer these questions on my own. However . Maestro Brand. You seem to perpetrate a hands on M.O. with your constituents so ......

I thought hes been clean more than 10 years? Not that it makes a difference- I think he’s fabulous and his energy is so positive when I met him at one of his recovery talks. The fact that he’s not puffed up with pride like many ex addicts who take a spiritual route to a healthy lifestyle makes him so engaging and relatable to others struggling with the same issues. I never think “oh well it was easy for him cause he’s famous”... he’s truly opened up and shown true vulnerability to help others. That’s love. Good work Russell Brand xx

What a couple of amazing men. You've both influenced my life for the better in v different ways.. ultimately though both through being genuinely compassionate, giving people. Real role models. โค๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š

You are both beautiful, but you Russell are the most beautiful and intriguing man I've ever laid eyes upon.

Celebrating 22 years clean and sober today, thank you for speaking up about addiction you inspire many people ๐Ÿ™‚

Watch this space for the next best wellbeing festival Russell Brand and The Body Coach 2020!

I think its "better late, than never!" Russel! ๐Ÿ˜…

Just a query - has Lori Hanson deleted her tirade or has she just blocked my response to her hateful spew against these lovely two human beings - the wonderful Mr Brand and The Body Coach? I’m assuming blocked as she blocked another person calling her out for her bitter insults. I feel sorry for her that she feels the need to show such hostility and spread bitterness.

I honestly would never say this to another “famous person” (you are way more than simply that) on social media. But you are true inspiration to me & have been for many years. You give my bipolar self true hope at many times when I’m not sure I should have it. ๐Ÿ’œ

The flowering of Consciousness needs the mud (suffering) out of which it arises, right? Eckhart taught me that.

I'm so disorganised and leave everything till the last minute. Missed the tickets sales.....next year. Is it child friendly, I'm going to bring my mini hippies with me ๐Ÿ™‚

Where was this ? Was it a festival? Why didn't we know about it?๐Ÿ˜ฉ You both look so happy. It's in the eyes. Lots of love to you both. ๐Ÿ’•

Love you Russell and so happy for your recovery. You are a genius. Keep up the good work.

Was a very happy festival! Enjoyed your chat...

That is such a heart-warming uplifting gorgeous photo! I love it and both of YOU!! #teachyourchildren brilliance radiates, congregates, and inspires and we appreciate the smiles as they urge us better!

It was a lovely day!

What a beautiful pal you have there. Hope you two had a good time!

I was there yesterday, wonderful event . Loved your inspirational words, your aura , your humour .well done Fearne for organising this . ๐Ÿ’œ

Never seen Russell looking happier. All joy. How wonderful. ๐Ÿ’ž

Love this photo Russell & Fearne your inner light is really shining through, beautiful smiles & great beard . Namaste ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

You are looking fantastic Russell!

I really appreciate you and what you are trying to do/doing. I hope we can give you strength with your cause and messages. You have truly come a long way for a human, let alone an Infp and I thoroughly support the fact you have come beyond martyrdom. โ™ก Just love and honest support; amazing. Please keep it up!

Looking better Russ! Especially since seeing you in Auckland!

Would love to give you a hug, Russell. Thank you for all your inspiration ๐Ÿ’—

Glad to see your so happy! Bless you always! Maybe one day we will meet each other.

Great photo of your two x

You look very happy. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Russell you’re a cool dude. Fearne, yes she’s incredible cos she ‘presents’ stuff. A valuable asset to humanity, progressing us deeply into a new consciousness, I’m sure.

His smile warms my soul hes so happy and peaceful it just radiates from him

I love the life in this picture.

I adore you, Russell, but please shape up the beard a bit:)

Reading your addictions book at the moment and what a god send it and you are!

That is a most beautiful genuine smile!! ๐Ÿ˜

โค๏ธ & openness ! In Russells book, RECOVERY...he speaks of our understanding of this world, as the same as turning on a film & only watching 2 mins of it, turning it off & then thinking we have a full & true understanding of it... ALWAYS stuck with me & helps me to stay open, tolerate & humble. Love & Light peep xxxx โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

Are you born again?

Although entertaining, to the individual seeking specificity, aid and direction, this is mainly superflouous?

This guy is an inspiration to me. Seeing him go through so many changes in his own awareness and to share that publicly. Massive huge respect and thank you Russell Brand ๐Ÿค—

Feeling all of those. What helps. Spiritually. Looking for connection but in some wrong places. God/ universe/ love... But beer helps. Wanking. Dying. To be reborn anew. Just growth Russell...๐Ÿ’œ

Someone wise once told me that pain only exists in the mind. Never felt any pain ever since.

Yes as well as dont be fearful of detoxifying the awful toxins in your life that aren't chemical but other people's problems. Dont allow family to use you and then cover it by saying, "but we are family" or "but we are blood" because if they practiced that - they would care more about you than to constantly venomize your life with their bullshit, they would give as much as they take, and they would help as much as they accept help. They are not your problem to solve. They have to fix themselves and if you keep doing that for them, you are feeding their toxins, not helping them. It's not love to put up with being used and abused by a family member and it's not love that they do that. Cut those ties, fearlessly. When they truly get healthy - they will prove it by their treatment to you, not words but action. Love yourself FIRST. Or you can not properly love anyone else either.

You're INCREDIBLE and such a joy to listen to.

Cheers, great self-honesty, and humility which is crucial. There are times when one might feel too proud to speak like this, but this is when growth starts. Saying it how it is for them. Not putting on a fake front. This is a great thing to do, drop the act and be real, I love it.

Go Russ, you’ve been an arse ( and I followed you forever! Believe!!) and now you’ve matured and turned a corner ( like most blokes let’s face it). I listen to the master of linguistics and sensibility! Long may you continue. Lots of love Po xx

Man I love this guy. He is so smart and articulate

How would you respond to the comment "never trust an addict"?

I hear ya ... pain once I transformed it and understood became part of who I am .... Or in fact is part of who I am . But the more I remain in my consciousness the less it effects me because I understand that the pain body (energy) can not exist in the present moment but only in my perception of what happened to me . Learning to transform my pain was my greatest blessing and it is in my present state that I have met the self and have fallen in love with my broken pieces . Authentic real love and life ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you ๐Ÿ™

Thank you Russel Brand for using your voice for good! I can’t tell how much your words have helped me. Thank you!

Pain helps us grow, we need pain to challenge us and help us grow emotionally, pain and loss are part of life, there is I think a book called “the happiness trap “ which goes into this truth in more detail xx

And a chair not borrowed from the kindergarten class down the hall!

Great insight Russell. You are amazing.

So true, pain does lead to growth ๐Ÿ’œ

Come to Montréal

Russell, glad to see you’re back on track. Thank you for sharing your experience, strength, and hopeโค๏ธ

Russel- I’ve really enjoyed your thoughts on a lot of things in life. Very insightful and eye opening my friend!

The more of your videos I watch the more I feel as if you live in my head and are articulating my thoughts. That massive shove from the soul and the universe that makes you fall from so high the the dent your face plant leaves is more of a crater.. but not fighting is never an option,, perspective changes though a d the realization comes that the battle is only with oneself..love or war...

It is these situations that make us stronger,to improve ourselves as people and spiritually. They are the difficult things that we find in the way of the test in which we are in this world. Thanks Russell for your example of life.

Everyday when I am greeted by your latest video I feel grateful for your desire to share your evolution with humanity. It’s really quite beautiful indeed. Thank you.

Testimony to Truth comes not always easy to the giants of some experience... I prefer to be humbly quiet yet still find that approach beset by invaders of my thoughts... And I guess this somewhat applies to grant further thought... Whilst I ignore it and await community free dinner and play free pool table like a stubborn imp stuck in some level of sustainable for now putty I am said to be enabled through effort to lift alike an angelic form from and become the dream of others imaginings... Pool helps me focus on technique and skill a little somewhat... I get sick of negative voices and sometimes find them even in the testimonial footprints.. It injured me I think... It does....

Starting to read "Mentors", amazing! It is so inspiring and encouraging to see that the importance of having a mentor in life is spread and can be read about. As a Buddhist I have learnt that over the years and thankfully I do have mine in my Buddhist community. Amazing book!
